    Here are Adams weaknesses for those who haven't touched the char for more than 5mins.

    Short backdash
    Slow backdash
    Poor invincibility on backdash (all above makes it hard to impossible to whiff punish advancing strings or gaps within strings)
    Slow walk speed
    No wake up attack
    D2 is decent but loses to strong air attacks
    No far reaching advancing mids
    F12 is a great whiff + combo punisher but gets low profiled, it can't just be thrown out there on the neutral. Any decent player will react and punish you.

    B12 (trait)is my mid of choice though limits combo opportunities without trait.
    D1 into anything has gaps, making his counter attack game a bit risky.

    He's not a zoner, doesn't have the best rushdown tools & he doesn't have the best defensive tools either.

    We couldn't say he is an all around archetype like SF Ryu or MK9 Lao.

    Adam is strong but definitely not OP.

    Only reason I think cheetah is so strong is because of her ability to get in and hit you, while making it extremely hard to hit her. I think it’s really easy to open someone up with cheetah.

    Not saying otherwise, just make his rushdown mix ups less brain dead.

    The only thing I’d ask for is making flash kick(df1) more punishable on block.

    There is a 6 frame-ish buffer window for frame perfect normals so once you get the hang of it, it’ll be clear as day.

  13. Is it confirmed 6 frames? I had thought it was an extra 2 so 6 frame punishes had a total 3 frame window of success.

    And I only assume that because of a post of a tweet

    I think Supes, Black Adam, and Super Girl are gonna be your top tiers--in that order. But IMO I would only give slight nerfs to either Supe's zoning or his pressure (not both), slightly adjust mb low lightning or mb divekick on Black Adam, and maybe make slight hitbox/pushback adjustments to Super Girl.

    Firestorm could very well be a problem, but it's too early to tell.

    Scarecrow needs to have the recovery frames on a whiffed command grab increased so you can punish his pressure with a backdash/neutral jump easier.

    Catwoman needs her blockstun adjusted so her negative moves actually punishable (much like Robin's run issue).

    That's it though. The rest seems fair to me.

    212 has a 7f gap you can stop it consistantly with his 6f d1 once you lab it, none of his trait cancel are plus they are all negative the best one 212 trait cancel is still -1 you get a free d1 check If you have a 6f d1.

    I mean, it’s tight and all.The timing is much more lenient than frame perfect(frame perfect is absolute bs for me) so I suppose that it is a 6~ frame buffer window.

    Pretty sure the normal buffer window is 3f, but it's been ages since the post explaining it, and I'd have a hard time finding it again.

    it's okay if some characters have things that are broke as long as they have weaknesses in other areas. those are my thoughts like, nerfing cheetah and flash is kinda silly.

    Wigy There it is...

    You have a 3/4 screen launcher that jails into f12 on block.

    Black adam is definitely just as braindead.

    Probably way more tbh. Everyone has a pocket adam.

    If we’re nerfing flash based on him being too strong, plenty of characters that should go first, if we’re nerfing cause hes braindead, again there are much worse offenders most of which are higher tier.

    If people want to design cause of his polarising ‘really weak here so really stupid here to make up for it’ i’d be annoyed if they didnt redesign cheetah.

    It seems you have not touch Adam for even a minute, MBDK is only plus at certain angles, f1 is a high... good to decent players won't let you get away with it.

    DK is one of the best tools in the game, no doubt, have you noticed Dragon only dks like once or twice a match vs good players? wonder why?

    Flash is not the only char I want normalized either. All we are asking is for one of his 50/50s that lead to 70-90% corner carry combos to be more punishable on block.
    Again only one of two, letting him mix till he opens you up without consequences is brain dead.

    Also Flash is not a "really weak here" type char, he's an overall good char, very little to no weaknesses.
